And offensive coordinator that can modernize this offense.
Right which is why I think Burrow is starting. I for sure think Brennan has a higher ceiling. I DO NOT trust the LSU coaches to get him there tho.
It's ironic that a kid from a famous restaurant family wouldn't be able to put more meat on his bones.
In Burrow’s defense, WR play has been shit. That boar hog tit coaching WRs needs to go.
Can’t blame the receivers. When it’s 3 of you against 6 people covering what do you do? Now the drops prior to this game, yeah. But this game they were thrown to the wolves because the O line and TE’s and backs couldn’t keep Alabama out of the pocket and when they did Burrow would step up or leave it and run right into a Gump.
I just think this is an overrated factor. We can't take everybody. Auburn has beaten Bama a couple of times since we did it and their recruiting isn't as good as ours or it's about the same. We should be able to compete with Bama and probably win every 3 or 4 years, even with their recruiting being better than ours. We send as many, if not more, players to the NFL. We go in and take some targeted guys from Texas and Florida just like Saban gets a few of our guys. We get the vast majority of Louisiana's top players. A lot of the guys on the field on Saturday would not be starting for LSU right now if they were on our team. What we saw on Saturday is the result of basically having to rebuild the offensive line after the defections from last year, not recruiting failures. Orgeron will get that corrected, I have no doubt.
IMO, the real problem is obvious. We had a string of very good college QBs from Davey to Mauck to Russell to Flynn. We haven't been able to recruit and develop a QB since Flynn. IMO, it's a coaching failure. It goes across 2 regimes now. We need an actual QB expert on staff and we need a real offensive coordinator.
Oh we have recruited them alright...
I should have been clear. We haven't been able to both recruit and develop....
The OL and formations didn’t work against Bama. But WRs have been an Achilles heel all year.
Q. You've been very, you were very good in scoring touchdowns in the red zone early in the season first four or five games. The last four or five kind of dropped off scoring touchdowns. Have you seen anything that has kind of --
ED ORGERON: Yeah, guys are changing their coverage on us. They know what we're doing, we have to be more creative. We have to run the football, we have to do a couple of different things. We had some plans to be a little bit more creative in the red zone but they changed their coverage and some of the routes that we were going to run we couldn't run against their coverage.
